Additional Comments:Budget can go up if it's needed He would like to keep it as low as possible though. I don't think he needs a high end power supply
or motherboard but I would love you opinions on what parts you would recommend. Also he needs a after market cooler for his CPU.
Here are some suggestions -
CPU - If mainly gaming and overclocking, then the i5 would be good enough as @ stock its very powerful for gaming and when overclocked, even more,... Also for a single card setup, you wont need anything more,...
He doesn't want a SSD I told him to wait a bit till they get cheaper. Ya I'll overclock his i5 for him even at stock it's really fast. I wanna try get him to 4.0ghz-4.4ghz. Ya I explained to him about Crossfire and he didn't seem interested seems like he wants to keep this build for a while.
Thank You very much for this build came out cheaper than I thought.
